Our training methods and our labs are state of the art. A team of motivated professors and engineers supports our students in achieving their professional goals.

Our Service

Our aim is to give you the best preparation not only in the perspective of your professional career, but also to get acquainted with the German way of life.  We are aware finding accommodation is a difficult task, especially if you are coming from abroad. We know about cultural differences and the importance of German language knowledge.

Hence our services for accepted students includes:

Exciting New Program Starting in Winter Semester 2019

We are proud to announce that we managed to further improve our program for the winter semester 2019. What has been changed:

  • The 7.5CP modules have been replaced by 5CP modules, which allows us to adress more topics.
  • The variety of elective modules has been increased to offer a wider choice depending on your personal interests.
  • The modules contents have been updated to adress new state of the art topics.
  • Knowing the importance of German language skills, the amount of language classes has been extended.

Program Structure

The program is two-phased: one academic classroom oriented first year with theoretical content and a two-pronged curriculum: Mandatory modules shared by all majors, such as programming techniques, project management, presentations and communication skills. Major specific mandatory modules are complemented by a variety of state of the art electives. The third semester is dedicated to an industrial internship to gain experience within a German company. You will conclude IMSEIT during the final six months doing your thesis project in a demanding research-related topic.

Choose your Majors

Our Master’s course in "Electrical Engineering" offers a superior level of education in the following key areas of modern electrical engineering.

The general aim is to provide scientific skills and the ability to analyse, develop, and manage complex systems in the field of electrical engineering through the application of scientific methods. The course is aimed at developing in-depth abilities in theory and system-oriented thinking in such a manner that its graduates will have achieved the competencies necessary to enable them to perform, manage and direct research and development tasks as part of their later job responsibilities. All in­struc­tion is held in English so that the graduates are well prepared for their world-wide employment prospects.


The main goal of the course is to expand the students’ theoretical and practical knowledge in different fields of modern and advanced automation technology as well as application oriented computer science. The master degree course also adresses modern control engineering and robotics. The program is structured in a way to foster analytical thinking and real-life experiences through laboratory assignments.

Apart from the compulsory modules for all majors there are 4 compulsory modules for the major Automation :

  • Advanced Automation
  • Advanced Information Technology
  • Advanced Feedback Control
  • Advanced Robotics


The  major Communications offers an in-depth background aiming at state of the art communication techniques.The program builds the student’s ability to participate in research and implementation of projects dealing with modulation and coding schemes. It also expands student‘s knowledge on microwave components and systems as well as theory and applications of discrete time signals.

The program is highly research oriented and has been designed to not just offer a factual knowledge but also various chances to apply what has been learned in the lectures during laboratories.
